Arvigo and colon massage

20 September, 2011

A type of massage focussing on the abdomen.

This treatment is usually related to either digestive issues or female reproductive organs.

What conditions is it used for?

Abdominal massage can help with bloating, digestive complaints, constipation, IBS, diarrhoea, fatigue and some skin conditions.

Arvigo or Maya Abdominal massage can help with many of the same conditions as above as well and female hormonal complaints, fertility issues and prostate enlargement.

Neither treatment should be used during pregnancy.

What to expect

Following a consultation, in both massages your practitioner will work primarily on your abdomen and lower abdominal area.

Abdominal massage – Your therapist will be trained specifically to massage the intestinal area to aid optimal health.  Massage increases blood circulation and also aids digestion and elimination.

Arvigo/Maya Abdominal massage – this technique addresses the position and health of the pelvic and abdominal organs. It is best known for the correction of the prolapsed or tilted uterus and for the prevention and treatment of benign prostate enlargement in men and for relief of many common digestive disorders.
